We saw a Nissan truck pulling a mid 70's Bambi pulling a 19' open bow just north of Binksville, Utah! I am sure they saw my plate sized eyes and heard the oboe sound emitted by my mouth from a mile away! Did not think that you could do that to an Airstream?

What's on the roof?

Another spotted in disrepair...parked in a driveway in Verdi, NV.
Some kind of "waterproofing" peeling from the roof. Also, equipped with some type of spray-on rock guards.

Never saw a hitch like the one in the picture. What kind of hitch is it?

Hey moderator, do I get a prize when it gets to 5,000?

Very cool to read the sightings. There's one in my driveway even. Not for sale.

Have a great day.

As we were getting onto I-40 eastbound off Highway 9 at Morrilton, Arkansas, about a week ago, someone towing an Excella a lot like ours was getting off I-40 westbound and headed north on Highway 9. We figured you might be headed to Greer's Ferry or farther into the Ozarks.

We weren't towing Esmerelda. We tried to wave, but it was too far for you to see us. Hope it was a good trip!

Thumbs up Ovr the Memorial Day....Tues 29th

We saw eight on 90 Eastbound in the space of two hrs, seven Streams and an Argosy. Starting at MM 300. Possibly back from Palooza. We were westbound coming home from the "Dack's".
Very kool....more in one day than we saw in 2500mi on our cross-country.

We just saw a nice one right outside our neighborhood on Blackwell Road in Marietta, GA. Too busy waving and trying to grab my phone for a picture, didn't get a good enough look at it and missed the photo op, too! Newer 25'ish airstream pulled by a black ford truck. Nice! We are beading out with our ready hitched up stream in an hour or so, heading the same way.
